The Basics

A prebooked admission ticket or day tour to Xcaret park makes it easy to access an impressive range of activities, with entry including the opportunity to snorkel with fish in natural lagoons, visit the park's Maya archaeological sites, and and catch the Xcaret Mexico Espectacular light and dance show. Some day tours have optional upgrades for extras such as a buffet lunch or exclusive changing rooms, while combo tours can be booked to also visit other nearby attractions, such as the Chichen Itza or Xel-Ha ruins or Xplor Adventure Park.

While there’s plenty to do within the bounds of a general admission ticket, a plethora of add-on activities are also available. For an extra fee, take a speed boat ride (from $59), snorkel atop an offshore coral garden (from $49), take in a theatrical interpretation of the origins of Mexican culture over dinner at the Gran Tlacho Theater (from $59), or experience the Temascal, a traditional four-part wellness ritual (from $39).

Xcaret what a wonderful place, people call it the Mexican Disney but let me tell you its 1000 times better than Disney. I was amazed by every single aspect of the park and how well they have preserved nature. No only that but they also have an amazing breeding program which is helping with almost extinct animals. Definitely recommend the dinner and show which shows the history of Mexico from the mayan era right through to today.

Priority Access: Combo Tour: Xcaret, Xel-Ha, Xplor and Xichen Itza
We had a fabulous time at Chichen Itza and Xcaret Park. The adventures at Xcaret were our favorite. The Sea Trek adventure is a must do. We also enjoyed the Rivers Tours and visiting the exotic animals. The buffet lunch was plentiful and delicious. We were happy that there was an option for a 4:30 p.m. return. 9:30 p.m. would have been much too long.

Tour Xcaret All Inclusive from Playa del Carmen - Included Transportation
Xcaret made my Birthday Amazing 🏝🥳, My boyfriend and I had an amazing time. The food in the international buffet was not that good. But the huge frozen drinks in the stands were everything. There is alot of walking involved and even though I got the Xcaret All inclusive Plus package $225 each. It only includes very few things. Lunch and a show at night but not breakfast and dinner.

Xcaret was a def recommend if you’ve never gotten to swim in a river through caves! Such an awesome experience. My only complaint is that there are only two departure times. One at 4 and one at 9. I would have loved to stay until 6 and it would have been perfect. We didn’t get to explore everything but also did not want to get home at 10:30. Aside from that recommend!
